Mattawang Golf Club
Mattawang Golf Club has changed very little since it first opened in 1960. The traditional layout has withstood the test of time as a challenging but playable layout. The course was designed to blend seamlessly into the natural setting while still testing your shot-making skills. You won’t find any man-made water hazards or artificial mounding on this golf course, instead you’ll be challenged by natural streams and ponds and mature evergreens. At first glance, the layout is seemingly wide open, but don’t let your guard down because the fairways are actually quite tight and many of them are strategically lined with trees. In keeping with the time it was built, the greens are smaller than those you would find on most modern golf courses and heavily protected by sand traps. Over the years, Mattawang Golf Club has built a reputation for having some of the well maintained putting surfaces in the area.

It’s a great course and I’ll be back. Country club level conditions
Brett, thanks a lot for the nice review!
Glad to see you enjoyed conditions, the new grounds crew has been working hard to get back to our expectations. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Course is in great shape
Perfect day and course is in fine shape. They need a beverage cart. Losing out on money I am sure the course needs.
Thank you for making the trip from Manalapan.
Just a fyi, we have tried the beverage cart service for many years and still do on occasion but without a liquor license we have never had any success. We do have beverages inside the Pro Shop.
Pace of play
Excellent pace of play. Walked in 3 1/2 hours. Excellent condition.
Dano, thanks, glad you enjoyed the conditions! Hope to see you again soon.
Well worth the trip fromUnion County. My favorite course to play!!
Bob, we are glad to see we are your favorite course to play!
Thanks for the continued support!!
Good mix of challenges. Nice layout. Senior rate would have been comparable to other courses in the area. Not a fan of preparing because of constant change of weather. Staff very accommodating. It is definitely an area course in our rotation
We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review.
How are the putting greens? Have they been aerated recently, if so are they difficult to putt on at the moment? Thanks.
James, the greens were aerated just over a week ago. The holes are filling in nicely and from my view, the ball is rolling as you would want and not bouncing. If easier please call to discuss. Thanks
exceptional staff (Luke and Ty)
Luke and Ty were exceptional. One of the guys in my 4some locked his keys in his car. of Course it was closing time. They waited patiently for the keys to be retrieved. there was not a sign of annoyance or inpatients.

Glad to see that Luke and Ty were able to help you guys out. We hope you enjoyed the course as well.
Course in good condition. Needs ball washers at the tee box and water coolers at 3, 6, 12, 15 tee boxes.
Jeff, thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Just to clarify, sorry, but ball washers and water coolers are not allowed due to Covid Protocol set forth by the State.
A good walk only somewhat spoiled
Generally narrow fairways and landing zones and small, bunkered greens are what helps protect this course's difficulty. Few water hazards and forced carries decrease the difficulty level. Didn't think teeing it up from the tips was the challenge it should be. Hitting into small greens reminded me of playing on an executive course (not in a good way though). Greens and overall course in good shape. Minimal amenities in clubhouse. Played early and pace of play was good. Very walkable. For those who care, can confirm that masks were not part of the staff's wardrobe inside the clubhouse even though there's a sign that says anyone who enters needs to wear one--I guess the protective glass at the desk is good enough.
Thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughts.
Bob, thanks for making the trip to Mattawang from Clark. Glad to see you enjoyed the day!
We appreciate you making the trip from NYC, enjoy your golf this season!
A fun course
Not the hardest track but fun. Perfect course to take your father-in-law out on where if you’re not great you won’t be looking for lost balls all the time and you won’t end up hating each other after the round. Fun, pleasant golf.
It is nice to see you found Mattawang to be a fun and pleasant place to play a round. thanks!
Thanks for the five star review! We appreciate your business and your feedback!
